    I started this in March and finally had to just MAKE time to finisg it and a couple others for myself. I'll post thise soon) This is a Seeker OSP3X in cobalt blue. I used American Tackle SU style guides with blue zirconium rings. An Amtak silver blue reel seat with a Raildawg grip. Thanks Bill. I did some urushi work on the butt and under all the guides and did a fade. All colors are Gudebrod colors. Looks good to me lol. Cant wait to pull on some Guadalupe YFT next week before I go to PV at the beginning of Feb.

    it took a little effort to do this one. hope it performs as well as it looks. i figured out a way to do the urushis a little easier. i did the marbling first and waited about 2 1/2 hrs or so after applying it till the epoxy was really tacky then stuck the abalone onto that. saved having to unglu7e my fingers because i used tac glue LOL
